David, being slack I have just downloaded the current nightly build. I really like the facility that these two new commands offer. The need either to maintain highlight or make a note of the first position is removed. Many thanks to developers. Now I just have to decide which shortcut keys to assign once 2.13 is released.

Hi Gary,

    Yes, that should work.
    There is bug in the nightly download that I gave the link for.
    It's been fixed, but there's not a more recent nightly build. If
    you execute the command select cursor to saved cursor position
    during playback, then the wrong time range may well be selected.

        Okay, so to set up a nightly build without affecting my normal
        installation, I unzip the build into a folder, make a Portable

        into it?

            Following on from an initial suggestion by Gary, there are
            now two new commands for selecting a time range.
            1. Save Cursor position, which is on the Edit menu. This
            stores the value of selection start, except during
            playback, including when paused, when is stores the audio
            2. Cursor to Saved Cursor position, which is on the select
            sub menu of the edit menu. This selects from the current
            value of selection start to the saved cursor position.
            During playback, it selects from the playback position to
            the saved cursor position.

            These commands are available in the nightly builds. This
            is the latest build:
